Martin Storey designed this simple sweater with an embroidered accent across the chest. The front, back, and sleeves are worked separately and sewn together to finish. Rowan Original Denim is great for kid's wear as it can be machine washed and tumble dried. Plus, it is soft and comfortable to wear. This yarn is designed to fade after washing giving it the look and softness of well-worn denim. Sized for ages 3-4 (5-6, 7-8, 9-10, 11-12, 13-14) with finished chest measurements of 28 (29, 31, 32, 34, 35)". Machine wash and tumble dry low, closely following the instructions in the pattern book.
Rowan Original Denim is designed to shrink in length and the designs in this booklet account for this shrinkage. Substituting a different yarn is not recommended.
The kit includes the pattern book and the yarn. For this project you will also need:
- needles in size US 6 and 3 (OR SIZE NEEDED TO OBTAIN GAUGE)
- 3 buttons
- small amount of yarn for embellishment
- tapestry needle
